Star India defines the future of digital media consumption at the Kyoorius Student Awards

MUMBAI: The only awards for India’s student community returns with10 new briefs set out by some of India’s biggest brands. Kyoorius, a not-for-profit initiative by Transasia Fine Papers, in association D&AD has announced the launch of the second edition of the Kyoorius Student Awards.


Kyoorius has created India’s only awards programme dedicated to the next creative superheros of India. In a format that’s never been seen before, real clients have set out briefs for students. Partnering with some of India’s biggest brands and creative business — briefs have been set out for specialist categories — Identity, Typography, Illustration, Packaging Design, Motion Design, Graphic Design, Product Design, Digital Design, & two Open Briefs.


Star India has partnered with Kyoorius to create a brief for the digital design category asking students to define the way India will watch TV on the go. Gone are the days where media and content is consumed on a single screen shared by the family; on demand and personal is the need of the hour. And this is an emerging trend that is especially prevalent with the youth.


Students will work on challenges such as the approach of how a user will navigate the site, the filtering of content and the UX, and the behaviour of this experience across devices such as laptops, tablets and smartphones.


All entires in response to Star India’s digital design brief and indeed all entries at the Kyoorius Student Awards will be judged by an international jury that will be flown down to India for the jury session to be held on ground and will be managed by D&AD


Students are encouraged to work on and submit their entries over a two month  period, the entry deadline being — 19th of May 2014. Priced at just Rs. 500 per entry, Kyoorius and D&AD stay committed to their not-for-profit causes and to help develop, recognise and reward the young creative talent across India. Winners of the awards stand to

win the Red Elephant Trophy, a cash prize of Rs. 50,000/- and a student pass for Kyoorius Designyatra 2015 alongside being featured in the Kyoorius Awards Annual.


Gayatri Yadav, EVP, Marketing & Communications at Star India said “We believe that innovation is at the forefront of growing the media industry. And the students are its creative torch bearers. Encouraging and engaging such talent is part of Star's culture and this platform plays a significant role in preparing them for the industry. With the Kyoorius Student Awards, Star wishes to celebrate this juncture of art & commerce that will define the future.”

Rajesh Kejriwal, Founder CEO of Kyoorius commented, “Design is most effective when it works. And Star is a great example of great design working hard for a great brand. The Kyoorius Student Awards are a great opportunity for younger creative minds to showcase their talent all while getting involved with creating real world solutions for real brands — brands that they can relate to.”
